“Greece is ready to undertake diplomatic initiatives leading to the implementation of the UN Security Council Resolution 1973 for a peaceful solution to the problem of Libya that will satisfy all political forces in the country and avert greater military action in the region,” Alternate Defence Minister Panos Beglitis on Tuesday stressed.

Speaking in an Athens private radio, he said that as regards the Greek participation “our country’s and our government’s position is very clear. We respect international law and we defend the UN decisions and our relations with our allies and partners”.
